CONSTRUCTION work at the Rabi jetty in Vanua Levu is expected to be completed by April.

Works Ministry spokesman Iliesa Sokia said those travelling to and from the island will soon be able to breathe a sigh of relief that the jetty was near completion.

"Construction work has started and we hope to complete the project some time in April," Mr Sokia said.

"The tender was issued to Pacific Building Solutions last year and we are thrilled the work is underway as expected."

Mr Sokia said the project was aimed to improve transport services for people living in the islands. "We aim to provide islanders with better infrastructure so they can have access to good transportation.

"This project will also benefit the economy because we expect bigger ships to berth at the jetty," Mr Sokia said.

Rabi Council of Leaders executive director Marlie Rota earlier said the jetty would greatly benefit the people of Rabi.

"The jetty will mean easy access to sea transport and there will more people travelling to the island," Ms Rota said.

"We thank the government for its assistance because this project will surely improve the standard of living on the island."
